Debra Higham, DMD

Debra Higham DMD

Dr. Higham grew up in Chadwick Beach Island, New Jersey. As a real Jersey Shore girl, she enjoyed working at Berkeley Sweet Shop on the boardwalk and spending as much time on the beach as she could. Following their love for the beach and warm weather, Dr. Sauchelli and she moved to Florida in 1986. Once they arrived in Jupiter, they realized how much of a paradise it is. They have lived and practiced in Jupiter since 1986 and absolutely love it! Golfing, fishing, biking, reading, sewing, creating jewelry, and cooking are her favorite pastimes. Dr. Sauchelli and Dr. Higham have one daughter, Julie, who graduated from the University of Florida- GO GATORS!!

They are a very close family and enjoy going on adventures together. Some of their favorites are cruising, skiing, and driving to wherever they choose. They’ve been to some cool places and have had some neat adventures and are constantly in search of new locations to explore. They’ve even been hot air ballooning and SKYDIVING! Family is first with Dr. Higham, and she treats all of her patients like family–with respect, care, and dignity.

Looking back on the first 30 years of practicing, Dr. Higham has enjoyed the ride with Dr. Sauchelli, the ups and the downs of owning their own business, the wonderful relationships made with colleagues and patients, and the incredible growth that their team has achieved. She truly enjoys helping people achieve whatever it is that they desire with their teeth and alignment, which in turn leads to good oral health. Making a positive difference daily in someone else’s life is incredible and important! It is a responsibility that Dr. Higham takes very seriously. Learning, teaching, and growing is a daily event in the office because most of what she does daily is continually changing.

Along with the gift of really listening to what people want, Dr. Higham has a very artistic gift that allows her to visualize the end result of treatment. Your bite is the most important aspect of dentistry–putting teeth where they should be will result in doing less dentistry in the future. Regardless if she is enhancing your smile through Invisalign®, veneers, or implants, what Dr. Higham has learned in her first 30 years of dentistry is that it will make a difference. She is looking forward to all the new technologies and changes!
